Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sound and sold 175 million records worldwide — all before they were 30. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”
Jersey Boys opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on Nov. 6, 2005, running 11 Record-Breaking Years and becoming the 12th longest running show in Broadway history. The boys said goodbye to Broadway on Jan. 15. The Jersey Boys U.S. National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on Dec. 1, 2006, and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. Jersey Boys is also currently playing in London, and tours of the United Kingdom and Australia will begin the end of 2017 and 2018 respectively. Jersey Boys worldwide has been seen by more than 24 million people.
